Thoughtful HR leads to engaged employees through engaging employee experiences. Backed with good data and insights, listening systems, and dedicated leaders and managers, modern HR practices foundationally improve employee interests, retention, and wellbeing – “in the cloud”, spanning hybrid work. We talk with Kerry Olin (Microsoft CVP, HR Services) and Jay Clem (Microsoft GM, HR Services) about how Microsoft adjusts its practices and technology to improve the employee experience for 160,000 full-time Microsoft employees around the world, including introductory thoughts “on the importance of data and insights” from Kathleen Hogan (Microsoft EVP and Chief HR Officer).
